Eye test uses AI to predict macular degeneration

A new eye test that uses artificial intelligence AI to study retina scans can predict age-related macular degeneration (AMD) three years before symptoms start.  The first part of the ‘pioneering’ test, developed by researchers at University College London, is called DARC.  DARC involves injecting dye into a person’s bloodstream to illuminate ‘stressed’ endothelial cells in … Read more Eye test uses AI to predict macular degeneration

The 10 classic cars experts predict will soar in value from next year
